Korea was one of the first countries to implement GHS: in December 2006, the Ministry of Employment and Labour (MoEL) revised OSHA according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), and proposed MSDS preparation and hazard transmission in Article 41, marking the beginning of the implementation of GHS by MoEL; In 2008, the Ministry of Environment revised TCCA according to the GHS system, and proposed labeling of hazardous chemical substances in Article 16, marking the beginning of the implementation of GHS by the Korean Ministry of Environment as well.
On April 8, 2022, the Korea Safety and Health Work Group of MoEL produced and distributed a self-regulatory checklist for chemical manufacturing and importing companies to fulfill the MSDS inspection system, and introduced the self-regulatory inspection measures such as fines will be taken for violations confirmed during the inspection, which symbolize the further strengthening of enforcement of GHS by MoEL. In this webinar, we will take the MSDS inspection system as an opportunity to introduce how to comply with the GHS system in Korea.
